Recently, a friend of mine was talking about his future hopes and dreams. I knew that what he was saying was something he was passionate about, so I encouraged him to pursue it more.
“It’s not possible for me to do,” he sighed.
That was one of the saddest conversations I’ve had, because my friend failed to realize that the fact that he wasn’t able to accomplish his dream on his own was not a bad thing.
I believe that everyone single person has a dream. Big dreams. Impossible dreams. We-could-go-broke-and-lose-everything kind of dreams. These dreams, I’m convinced, are often God-whispered. God often will give us big, impossible dreams—because we can’t accomplish big, impossible dreams without Him.
God loves to give us dreams that are
impossible to fulfill without Him.
If you are actually able to accomplish every hope and dream you have with your own effort and hard work, it’s not big enough. Don’t insult God by dreaming too small.
There is a God who loves you, is for you, and delights in fulfilling His dreams through you. That doesn’t mean it’ll be easy, of course—but it’ll be worth it.
“When you go through deep waters, I will be with you.
When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown.”
